What is The Happiness Project?

Team Management Systems is committed to giving back to our communities and developing future leaders for a sustainable world. The Happiness Project works towards this goal by supporting charities that have limited access to funding and professional development opportunities. 

The Happiness Project was founded in 2017, with a vision to nurture and sustain resilient charities built on the foundations of great teamwork and leadership. All workshops sponsored through The Happiness Project are delivered either directly by a TMS Authorised Distributor, or in partnership with a TMS Accredited Practitioner.

Each year, TMS offers a no-strings-attached donation of up to 10 profiles per TMS Accredited Practitioner, up to the total donation pool amount of AUD$10,000. For groups larger than 10 respondents TMS offers a 20% discount off the wholesale price of all self-rater profiles used in conjunction with The Happiness Project. Furthermore, all ACNC registered charities can access a 20% discount off the wholesale price of all self-rater profiles by seeking pre-approval from the Client Support Team.

Happiness Project Impact

For the past five years, The Happiness Project has been helping TMS Accredited Practitioners deliver much-needed leadership work in their communities. 

In partnership with our accredited practitioner network, Team Management Systems is proud to have supported the delivery of TMS products and training to over 300 Happiness Project recipients since 2017.

"As Chairman of the Board, I sought assistance from Cliff to facilitate a workshop to help the Board Members and the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) better understand how we work together. Cliff utilised the QO2 instrument and designed a workshop that explored our dynamic as a team by reflecting upon the way we make decisions."

"My expectation for today was to learn more about the Team Management Profile. I learned so much more, about my team, about other people but – more importantly – about myself. I can’t thank you and Team Management Systems enough for this opportunity."
